Enriching Lives



In English today we are looking to make clear notes on the positives and negatives of Philippe Petit's actions. We are going to look through our notes and write down quotes and think of reasons for each side of the argument.


The positives are:


fame and fortune;

made history;

inspired others to achieve something extraordinary


The negatives are:


it was dangerous and could have injured or killed people;

lost the friendship of a childhood friend;

he broke the law.


Organise notes under these headings and add more detail to explain eg he could have dropped something that may have hurt a spectator.
